Sonia O Sullivan receives grant aid from Irish Sports Council

Sonia O’Sullivan has succeeded in her appeal to receive funding from the Irish Sports Council. The former world champion was dropped from the International Carding Scheme earlier this year. Sonia was granted €22,500 after appealing on grounds of her performances so far this year. Meanwhile, European indoor gold medallist Alaistair Cragg has been awarded 14,350 euro following a late application.
